I suppose a lot of people here work on business networks where a naming scheme isn't really efficient.
They are efficient, just not flamboyant.
The standard I use for workstations at work is:
2 character BU code followed by two digit year code followed by two digit sequential number. This limits the deployment of no more than 99 computers at this BU per year. We recently adopted a 3 character BU code but there is no compelling reason for me to switch as of yet since there is no ambiguity with my 2 character BU code.
Our servers have a much more complex naming convention that I won't bother explaining.--
